    1. Jack "Babe Bean" Garland had such an exciting life, and I'm so glad I got to read about it! The one thing that confused me was how the author kept switching pronouns throughout his life, but constantly reminded us that Jack/Babe was always male, no matter how he presented. Still, a really great read overall!
